A-Crystal clear amber that's almost Pils-like in its clarity, along with a decent, khaki head that subsides but manages to stick around. Minimal lacing.
S-Scents of Belgian malt with a bit of cinnamon.
T-Biscuit, tea, with a very light hoppiness. Not particularly exciting but not bad, either.
M-Light on its feet; probably good even in warmer weather.
O-The jury is still out, and wile the beer has its qualities it's not really my preference, despite the reasonable ABV.
Serving type: bottle

I first had this from the bottle and though it was a decent beer, it was nothing to recommend to a friend. Then I went to my local Irish Pub, with the intent of having a couple Guinness with lunch, and found they had this on tap. I ordered one.
The head was minimal, but the appearance was a nice amber. The taste had a bit of hop but finished sweet. I'd describe the flavor as hoppy bubblegum. Surprisingly, I liked it. It was much better on-tap than from the bottle. I liked it so much I had another and never got to my Guinness (Sorry Grandpa McBride).
Serving type: on-tap
